Hey there and thanks for stopping by! My name is Khara Plicanic and I’m a professional wedding and portrait photographer, speaker, and author based in Lincoln, Nebraska.

About a year ago, I had the crazy idea to ride my bicycle across the country (along with my cutie-pie, web-developer husband Emir), offering free photography classes to educate and inspire everyone with a camera.

Emir and I are happy to announce that we’ll be stopping in 8 cities along our route from California to Florida, and you’re invited to join us!

Check out this quick video for a personal introduction and see below to find out how you can get involved.

Get involved!

Looking forward to having you along for the fun, in one way or another! :)

Who we are:
When we’re not on our bikes riding around the country teaching free classes, Khara runs a wedding photography business known as KaBloom  Studios, and I (Emir) continue my passion for all things web related. We’re proud to call Lincoln, Nebraska home.

Contest Update: Thank you to everyone who Facebooked or blogged about the UNtour! Everyone who did so (and provided the link in the comments below) has been awarded a copy of Flaunt from our friends at Into the Darkroom. We hope you enjoy it! :) Thanks for playing along with us!


  1. The [UN]tour San Diego was the BOMB.COM!!!

    It was one thing to be amazed of Khara’s customer service within literally minutes-hours of super rapid fast response via email. However, it was even more [UN]believably amazing to finally meet her in person and feel that [UN]limited PASSIONATE ball of ENERGY and WISDOM that she shared with her students for FREE!

    You guys are GREAT people! Keep that fire going! Thanks again!
